IJHPM follows a Gold Open Access business model. IJHPM levies article-processing charges (APCs) for accepted articles. APC ranges between $700-$1500 (USD), plus VAT or local taxes where applicable, depending on the article type. Please find more information here.
Submissions are acknowledged promptly by e-mail. All manuscripts submitted to the IJHPM are subject to the peer-review process. Authors can expect to wait about one or two months from the date of submission until receiving the initial journal’s decision (i.e., fast reject or go to peer review process). For manuscripts that are selected for peer review, the length of time between the submission and decision will vary widely (from 6 months to 12 months).
You may check on the status of your submitted manuscripts by visiting our online manuscript processing system at the "login form" and locating your manuscript in your account.
The IJHPM Impact Factor based on WoS JCR 2021 is 4.967!
Our acceptance rate for uninvited manuscripts is about 9%.
The IJHPM is published annually (a continuous issue every year).
Authors may submit an unlimited number of articles, provided that all submissions are compatible with our "Guide for Authors".

Although you will receive proofs from the editorial office before your manuscript is published, the purpose of these proofs is to pick up inaccuracies or typographical errors.

Indeed, it is essential that you ensure that the version you submit for publication in IJHPM is your final version.
